Clean Faucet Body

  • Apply silicone grease to outside surfaces of seat, O-rings and retainer.
  • Rotate spout until cross-hole in retainer is aligned with cross-hole in faucet body.
  • Lower spout into faucet body, without rotating, until fully seated.
  • Use hex key to probe and verify cross-holes are aligned - Very Important
